Worn Out Batteries
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "I need new batteries for my video game," Brandon said, making a beeline for the display.
2 Mom raised her eyebrows and tried to maneuver the cart into the tight area. "Again?"
3 "Yeah. I couldn't get it to work on the way to school today."
4 "Do you know what size batteries you need?"
5 "They are double As," said Brandon, picking up a package of eight batteries.
6 Mom walked over to the display. At the top of the display was a sign that read, "April 3rd is CHECK YOUR BATTERIES DAY." "Hmm," said Mom. "That's today!"
7 A store clerk walked over to Mom and Brandon. "Can I help you find something?"
8 "I think we found what we need," said Mom. "I just need to remember what other types of batteries I might need."
9 "Well, let me know if I can help you," said the clerk. Then he turned and left.
10 "Why do you need other batteries?" asked Brandon.
11 Mom pointed to the sign on the display. "Here's a list of items that we should check to be sure the batteries work," said Mom.
